DART offering thousands in bonuses for new workers

As industries across the country are struggling to hire new workers, Dallas Area Rapid Transit is offering some big bucks to bring people on board.

The DART Police Department is now offering a $5,000 signing bonus for new DART Police officers and a $2,000 bonus for Fare Enforcement Officers.

The bonuses will be paid in two parts. The first comes as a part of a worker's first paycheck, the second will be paid after completing field training.

In addition to police officers and fare enforcement officers, DART is also hiring police telecommunicators and camera monitors.

DART is holding a series of recruiting events throughout the month of August to try to encourage people to apply.
